As Trump's first one hundred days in office come to a close, Americans are reflecting on what the president and his administration have been able to accomplish since stepping into the White House. To call these first hundred days tumultuous would be an understatement, as Trump's attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare collapsed before it was even voted on and tensions with North Korea, Russia and even Canada have ratcheted up considerably. What does Trump think of all this? "I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," Trump told Reuters in an interview this week. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier." A shockingly candid...

Kenneth Williams was pronounced dead at 11.05pm local time at the end of a long day of intense legal hearings in both state and federal courts that failed to secure a stay on his sentence.

By Idrees Ali DJIBOUTI (Reuters) - The United States is closely watching a recent increase in piracy off the coast of Somalia, a senior U.S. military official said on Sunday as Defense Secretary Jim Mattis visited an important military base in Djibouti. The rise in piracy attacks has at least partially been driven by famine and drought in the region, the top U.S. military commander overseeing troops in Africa said during Mattis' visit as part of a week-long trip to the Middle East and Africa. The United States uses the base in Djibouti, a tiny country the size of Wales at the southern entrance to the Red Sea, as a launch pad for operations in Yemen and Somalia.

You know how, whenever a highly-anticipated new trailer or promo comes out, people scour it for Easter eggs? Those small, hidden, and usually fan service-y morsels of information?

Japanese carmaker Honda has set itself a huge target of selling 75,000 electrified cars in the US within the next four years and it believes that the key to meeting that goal is to offer buyers a range of three very different types of plug-in car, all called Clarity. Clarity is the name Honda bestowed on its Hydrogen Fuel Cell car, which has been available for lease in the US since 2016. At this week's New York Auto Show it has turned the name into a three-car range by lunching the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and the Clarity Electric, both of which look similar to the fuel cell original but are very different beneath the skin.

"We can't do that." In the hours following the incident, United wrestled with how to respond....

Iraqi cleric Moqtada Sadr on Tuesday warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that he risked suffering the same fate as slain Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi if he did not step down. The maverick cleric had last week condemned the suspected deadly use of chemical weapons by Assad's forces against civilians, becoming a rare Shiite leader to openly challenge the Syrian president's legitimacy. "I have urged him to step down to preserve the reputation of the Mumanaa and to escape a Kadhafi fate," he said, using a word that refers to a so-called anti-Western "resistance front" that includes Lebanon's Hezbollah, Iran and Syria.
(Reuters) - Highlights of the day for U.S. President Donald Trump's administration on Monday: SYRIA Trump is open to authorizing additional strikes on Syria if the use of chemical weapons continues there, the White House says.

Twitter recently rolled out their latest update that finally made @ replies even more confusing. Now, usernames no longer count towards the 140 character limit. It's an update that nobody really asked for and that nobody seems to be happy with, especially when considering the uptick of abuse that has plagued the platform as of late. Though every update Twitter rolls out is apparently in the interest of helping new users, the site seems to be more confusing and convoluted than ever before.

A joint command center made up of the forces of Russia, Iran and militias supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said the U.S. strike on a Syrian air base on Friday crossed "red lines" and it would respond to any new aggression and increase its support for its ally. The United States fired dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian air base on Friday from which it said a deadly chemical weapons attack had been launched earlier in the week, escalating the U.S. role in Syria and drawing criticism from Assad's allies including Russia and Iran.
